Dial Medicine for Murder, a Show with a Difference. Monday 6th March 2023

Dial Medicine for Murder is a lecture show with a difference, being given by Dr Harry Brunjes and Dr Andrew Johns in Great School at Ipswich School on Monday 6th March, from 7.30pm until 9.30pm.

This is the story and juxtaposition of the two most notorious British physicians of the 20th Century, Dr Harold Shipman & Dr John Bodkin Adams. Comparing and contrasting the background, arrest, trial, legacy and psychopathology of both individuals interspersed with film footage and contemporaneous news items.

'Dial Medicine for Murder' is presented as a consultation with Dr Harry Brunjes & Dr Andrew Johns who first met as medical students at Guys Hospital followed by careers in general medicine and forensic psychiatry respectively.

The main theme of the lecture is forensic psychology and medical malpractice, following the  Bodkin-Adams and  Shipman. Both of these men were convicted of killing their patients through means such as injecting lethal doses of painkillers into patients, causing an overdose. 

In this lecture, Brunjes and Johns will analyse and compare these two serial killers through an insightful and interactive discussion on their backgrounds, arrests, trials and legacies. They will also consider how both the medical and legal systems have changed following these two diabolical doctors; and question whether something like this could happen again.

Tickets cost £10 each and are available at the following link https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/dial-medicine-for-murder-dr-harry-brunjes-and-dr-andrew-johns-tickets-528130000047
